Default Chauffe Coeur Rhum Vieux

Under the lamp this rhum exhibits a glorious brandy-like appearance, flawless clarity. Upon uncorking a honeyed/sherry aroma wafts up from my copita planting a smile on my kisser. Additional air contact stimulates other layers of aroma; fruitcake, cane and almond joy candy. Oh baby. The palate entry is grassy, rich and long; at midpalate the cocoa sensation is soon overtaken by honey and butter cream. The finish is bitter-sweet and opulent. A world-class rhum that I'd be happy to serve to anyone at anytime. Bravo for another distinguished spirit from the cellars of the brothers Martayrol.

Frankly Ed I'm bewildered, with all the back and forth, that you have yet to try Christine's outstanding line of rhums.
Or have you?
